Don't worry everyone. Munchausen and MbP has been "totally debunked"! Let's go home.
They have no idea what the proving ground is. They think it's a code name for a proof reader employed by IF, who I apparently also work for.

Also lol @ making a big deal about the wording "the deed is done" as if it was something dark and ominous. I was quoting Mr. Krabs because I felt a bit silly that evening.

That woman is off her rocker insane. She's also a flight attendant, which is neither here nor there, but I highly doubt she's the sleuthy genius she thinks she is.

Aside from her ranting about how IF is a Big Pharma conspiracy, a quick browse of her Twitter sees her ranting about fumes and "aerotoxins" that she's been exposed to and how they impair cognitive function.

Her book also calls airline customers "crazy". For people obsessed with ableism they sure do like to throw out words like "crazy", "psycho" etc around

They're all so obsessed with the idea that we're "cyberstalking" and this is ILLEGAL!!!

If you don't post about what you're doing every minute of your life, we won't know about it. Simple solution, costs absolutely nothing to pull off. Just... don't post about what you're doing today, and then we won't fucking know what you're doing today, and then we can't talk about it.

Social media is such a beautiful little blessing. Give people a public outlet and nearly limitless options for what they can input, and they fill it up with pure entertainment.

She also runs a group for flight attendants who had what I'm sure were extremely severe and medically verified reactions to "toxic chemicals" in their uniforms. TOXINS EVERYWHERE, you guys. Toxins that, inexplicably, don't leave the uniform when it's washed but somehow do immediately leap out and contaminate the wearer of said uniform.

You know, this is the first time I had a New York Times Bestseller accuse me of being the mastermind of a massive conspiracy. I feel honored.
There should be an award for mentions like this. A Sonichu medallion maybe?

This is a step below ranting about contrails and 5G radiation. Seems like a good candidate as a future Morgellons warrior

You beat me to the Morgellons.

This woman is taking her insane ranting to fatlogic, gardening groups and other unrelated groups on reddit because she is literally following illness fakers members everywhere to respond to their posts and comments .

A quick word on Heather Poole's apparent obsession

Okay, so I did a bit of digging on the subject because when people throw around phrases like "organophosphates" my autism is triggered. Organophosphates are a class of molecule that can include DNA, ATP, etc but I think they're referring specifically to certain insecticides and exposure can cause red eyes, burning lungs, skin irritation, nerve damage in high doses etc etc.

Now, insecticide use is required for travel to/from certain countries. The US follows the recommendation by the World Health Organization to use pyrethroids, which is so safe we spray it on our skin to keep mosquitoes away. DDT hasn't been used since it's ban in 1972. Insecticides aren't used for most flights including short ones within the continental United States. The actual method of deinsection isn't strictly regulated but the best way to reduce your exposure? Don't touch wet insecticides/pesticides. Sorted.

I'd never heard of Ms Khakpour before, so checked her twitter to find the usual list of illnesses in her bio plus "CIRS" which stands for "chronic inflammatory response syndrome". I googled for some symptoms, and well, if you've ever felt mildly uncomfortable you probably have it guys and it's definitely real!


CIRS General Signs & Symptoms
Fatigue, weakness, flu-like symptoms, exhaustion, insomnia, sensitivity to environment, and possible multiple diagnoses from various doctors.


Eye/Ear/Nose/Throat Symptoms
Blurred or hazy vision, eyes sensitive to light, eyes tear easily, , puffy/dark circles below the eyes, night blindness, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, dizziness, sinus/nasal congestion, nose bleeds, sensitive to odors, vocal cord polyps, nasal polyps, laryngitis or raspy voice, burning in the throat, or sore throat


Musculoskeletal Symptoms
Joint pain, shooting pain, ice-pick sharp pain, burning pain, stabbing pain, muscle cramps, muscle aches, muscle weakness, fleeting pain/pain that moves around, tics, spastic muscles, charlie horses, hands curl up like a claw, toes/feet curl up, morning stiffness


Lungs/Heart Symptoms
Shortness of breath and tachycardia (fast heart beat) with exercise, cough, wheezing, asthma, swelling or edema, heart palpitations, heart pounds intermittently


Digestive/Liver/Urinary Symptoms
Metallic taste in mouth, bile reflux, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, weight loss, weight gain, urinary frequency


Nervous/Endocrine/Immune Symptoms
Insomnia, headache, dizziness, mental confusion, poor concentration, poor short-term memory, forgetfulness, can’t remember names or words, poor word recall, disorientation, decreased learning ability, extreme thirst, low blood pressure, poor body temperature regulation, numbness, tingling, tremors, vertigo, Parkinson's-like symptoms, mood swings, anxiety, irritability, lack of sex drive, swollen and painful lymph nodes


Skin Symptoms
Skin is sensitive, skin is itchy, feels like bugs crawling on skin, feels like bugs stinging or biting but there is nothing there, easy bruising, Itchy pimples, skin sores, bumpy skin, thickened skin, skin peeling, burning sensations, red face, sweats - especially at night, static shocks, skin reacts to sun, even through clothing sometimes, vitiligo, cherry hemangiomas, and urticaria, commonly known as hives



Extremities
Cold hands/feet, discolored hands and feet such as white and red mottling, numbness in parts of the body, e.g. foot "goes to sleep", tingling, hands shake, and clawing of fingers or toes



Visual Contrast Sensitivity Testing, commonly known as Visual Contrast Testing, was originally developed by the U.S. Military Medical Services as a visual assessment for jet fighter pilots. It is a testing measure for the ability to see details at variable contrast levels of grey. While in fact it is a nonspecific test of neurological immune functional assessment- it is found to possess a high degree of accuracy and sensitivity for biotoxin exposure.

Visual contrast ability is impaired in most CIRS sufferers whereby over 90% of them fail a simple VCS test. VCS testing provides an initial indication of whether CIRS is a likely diagnosis, although it cannot confirm or rule out CIRS.

If you have any of the symptoms listed and you have sought medical treatment with no significant results we encourage you to make an appointment with a Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome physician, CIRS specialist, Dr. Sherif Hassan.
Dr Sherif Hassan has a special interest in Lyme and Candida infections, and getting fat checks from hypochondriacs.

How dare you suggest a simple solution that implies if they actually have health problems from touching chemicals they weren't supposed to touch it's their fault they touched them, and by extension since most of them will vehemently deny having touched the chemicals that the symptoms are psychosomatic or unrelated!

Chemicals!

Organophosphates is a very big word!

I would like to congratulate various users of this image board on their distinguished medical and scientific careers. She's obviously not looked around IF much, as Reddit is about the only SM outlet that doesn't get mined for munchies.

Also I'm wondering what % of her followers are bought, considering the rather low engagement rate from an apparent 90k+ followers.

I almost want IF to approve this Heather person as a subject. Almost.

Would love to watch that meltdown.
If I get around to a proper thread OP for Porochista, it will undoubtedly include the swarm of hilarity that follows her.

And then maybe they'll actually figure out what the damn proving ground is.

Absolute meltdowns happening on Twitter over IF. Including this woman who can't seem to get keep the name of the subreddit straight but is convinced big pharma or something is behind them.

I love when someone new is added to their roster. These discussions about IF have been happening on twitter for ages, but every new addition wants to act like they just discovered it and will singlehandedly bring them down.
Went down this wackadoo's twitter feed, and you weren't kidding about the meltdown. I gather that she thinks MBIr and r/illnessfakers are somehow related to..Journal of Medical Internet Research and it's all a big pharma conspiracy to silence sick women? IFA is IF and KF? Good Lord.
Maybe, but hypothyroid is really common in dogs, especially larger dogs in middle age, which Freckles is. On the other hand it's also seriously overdiagnosed when the answer is actually that the owner doesn't walk and overfeeds their dogs and wants a medical reason that their own shitty petcare is not to blame for their animals' health. It usually causes itchy skin (which is why the vet asked if she'd been itchy) and hair loss in high-wear areas (usually on both sides of their trunk from where they lay down) addition to weight gain and lethargy. While Freckles' coat is a dull, brittle mess I don't see it looking patchy, thin, or having any difficulty regrowing. TT4, the test for hypothyroid, is not usually a test they do in office while you wait – most places will send it or process in office and call you back with results later – but that's just based on my own personal experience going to a few small practices. Maybe she goes to one of those big fancy ones that processes a ton of labs in house, idk.

I think they maybe gave her a trial for thyroid meds to see if they work without a diagnosis because it's tolerated well and there't little real risk if they give it to her for a few weeks and it turns out her thyroid's fine.

I'm also convinced SJ feeds them a vegan diet, which would also explain why Freckles is fat and her coat looks like garbage.

And no, she no longer has the farm. She casually dropped it in a vlog a few weeks ago that she used to run an animal sanctuary and the facebook/website for it has been gone for ages. N/S as to what happened to the animals.
Interesting hunch about the vegan diet for poor Freckles. Now that you mention it, I have to agree and wouldn't be surprised. I read up on it once and learned that dogs are inobligate carnivores so they can technically survive on vegan food, but Jesus Christ. Denying a dog meat? 404: comprehension not found. You wanna be a granola hippie skinny ~eco-grrl~ go for it but don't drag your animals along for the ride. What's worse is when these tools try to feed a vegan diet to cats. Anyone attempting to veganize an obligate carnivore should be arrested for animal abuse. Some people are just out of this world. S-J is just the gift that keeps giving.
This cunt has been disgusting me for years now. I guess she is pretty low key compared to some of the women discussed here. I wish I had some of her old social media content. I have to say the thing that bothers me the most is how her parents enable her. https://www.instagram.com/p/Buz4QMGlrGJ/
I briefly went through her Insta, not really impressive and only a few OTT T1D, scar and line whoring posts. Is this a personal vendetta? Do you know her from somewhere else or does she have a more robust Sicksta under another name? Of course, she's a dancer with a history of ED. So original.
If I get around to a proper thread OP for Porochista, it will undoubtedly include the swarm of hilarity that follows her.

LOL, this might just be the single best argument for all the different munchie-themed subreddits, because it's fun to watch these crazies chase their tails in an ever deepening spiral of WTFery. On this note, though, IF refugees need to stop with these bright ideas for new subreddits every 5 minutes, each of which lasts shorter than the previous one, and it's a pain in the ass to visit them all or even keep track. IF, IFA, Mal, IFF, IFGW, MBI, Sicksta, and I'm sure I'm missing a few. Everyone thinking *their* new sub will be the One True Real Official Bestest Munchie Sub(TM) has gotten real old, real quick.
